Yes, I know it’s a cliche, but they’re cliches for a reason.
I decided to aim high with some recent submissions and received a lovely rejection email from Boxcar Poetry Review. It’s a form rejection, but that doesn’t matter – its tone made me feel ‘not bad,’ and that’s good.
Neil, thank you for your gentleness. You are a gentleman. I’ll be back!
Thank you for submitting your work to Boxcar Poetry Review. We have read your submission with interest, but have decided not to publish these particular poems. We appreciate your efforts and wish you all the best in your writing and publishing endeavors.
